No longer the centre of the industrial world, Birmingham and the wider West Midlands must find its place for a more sustainable future.

The Jewellery Quarter, where this walk begins, is a well-known example of urban regeneration, but has its transition sanitised our perception of the past? How does it impact the futures we imagine?

Join three researchers from across the University of Birmingham on a walking tour from the Jewellery Quarter into the city centre as they contemplate the effects of these changes.

Presented by Coralie Acheson (Ironbridge International Institute for Cultural Heritage), Aimee Jackson and James Walker (both Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Research Centre).
